Winter Wonderland New Challenge

Morning all.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend so far. It was great to see all your designs without Xmas papers and stamps last week, such a variety!

We have another new theme this week at Winter Wonderland, which is to decorate a candle or make a candle holder, or both if you like!

Well, I have never decorated a candle before, so I chickened out of that bit and opted to do the holder part. I found a lovely 'storm lantern' I think they call them, at Tesco for a couple of quid, so I bought that to use for this project.

It came as a set with the candle and some sand. All I did was pop the candle in the lantern with the same and some glitter mixed in, and then stick some silver snowflakes here and there. I found a lovely decoration in my local chemist and used that too. I think it was meant to go on your gifts - whatever. . . ! I also added some twirly florists ribbon to it for some extra pizazz.

It was a devil to take a photo of though, all that glass and fingermarks!!

So, head on over to Winter Wonderland and take a look at our DT offerings for some added inspiration, and get those candles out guys!!
